Activated charcoal added to the cat’s sand can be an excellent method to decrease the odor of feces . Many tutors use this method that has proven to be very effective.

In addition, a study was done to see whether or not cats liked the presence of activated charcoal in their litter box. The results of the study demonstrated that cats used sand with activated charcoal more often than without charcoal [1] . Thus, this method can be very effective in preventing elimination problems or it can help prevent the cat from urinating out of the box .
